Atrophic Vaginitis


 

The drop in estrogen that comes with menopause or even during breastfeeding after delivery causes physical and emotional changes that may have a significant impact on comfort and quality of life. Among the most bothersome problems is atrophic vaginitis, which is the lack of nourishment and hydration of the cells of the vaginal mucosa. This condition causes a progressive thinning of the vaginal and vulvar mucosa which then becomes more delicate, sensitive and more exposed to trauma.

Vaginal dryness and irritation may be a result of atrophic vaginitis, which is often not discussed because some consider it a natural consequence of menopause and postpartum. Thanks to innovative laser techniques, this problem can now be treated in a safe and painless way.
